Since the source for the Propeller 1 has been release, there has been a mariad of activity on the forums. In fact, there has been so much activity that I am starting to lose track of key posts, files, etc. So I am creating this entry to keep track. While this is mostly for my own benefit, I hope everyone else will also find it useful.

Dang it. I finally get some funds ready to buy a Wild Thumper Kit, and my wife tells me she need a set of tires and a brake job. Crap crap crap. I bet these will be removed from inventory one the last ones are sold. If you need a Wild Thumper, THIS DEAL CAN NOT BE BEAT BY ANYONE ANYWHERE. Trust me.

It's that time of year again. That time of year when we get too little notice and budget to build a badge for a conference.
I'll try to sneak some pictures in as the prototypes are built ;-)
08/25/2014: I have not been able to obtain the Wild Thumper so far, but really hope to get it soon! What a disapointment. However, I am working little by little on developing pseudocode for the GeoRover. I am adapting code from the OBEX, primarily in Spin format, coupled with code borrowed from the Arduino website, with hopes of eventually porting the code over to Propeller C. I plan to use Spin2cpp (version 1.05 to http://code.google.com/p/spin2cpp/) provided by ersmith to convert my hacked-together
Its the sparkfun model SEN-09848, the one that didn't have voltage regulation, and the atmeg code didn't work above 50cpm.
I modified a sparkfun geiger counter so it has a readout display from a propeller chip.
The prop chip gets its count from the output led, not the atmeg chip.
The prop will blink the very right decimal point when it counts a pulse.
The green led on top is connected directly to the pulse output from the geiger counter.
